The skills required to identify a forged signature are far greater than
the skills required to verify a forged ID card.

However, that's not really the point. It was just a possible
justification for using ID cards rather than trying to verify the signature.

The point is this: it's not violating any of your civil liberties. The
company is free to put further restrictions on the acceptance of your
credit card if they so desire. If you don't like it, pay in cash, or
shop somewhere else. It's as simple as that.
